Since last year we've been working a lot on improving the interface of Driver Fusion. As a result are many parts of the interface improved based on the suggestions from the community.

The part we receive the most feedback on is the menu. Because we receive both positive and negative feedback on the menu, we would like to hear your opinion on it.

We've been working on a couple of variations on the menu and will show you some below.

On all screenshots, the icons are placeholders and do not represent the final idea. The blue color might also be changed (feedback is welcome).

On #3 and up you can also find a question button shown on the top of the screen. This button links towards the manual of that specific screen. This is planned for the upcoming version.

#1

The current menu, the hints shown.

#2

A menu on the left side, the hints shown.

#3

A menu on the left side, no hints. The most important hint is now shown as a tooltip when you hover over the menu.

#4

A menu on the left side, no hints and a question icon where you can hover over (or click on) to describe the feature. This question icon is only shown when you hover over health check. Here, you can also find a settings icon on the bottom left instead of the top.

With this type of menu there is no longer a separation between the screens we use at the moment (maintenance, computer, management). We also made some variations with separation integrated:

#5

Implied separation, but not naming them.

#6

Separation with names.

#7

Separated by category, you first click on a category and then it expands to the different screens.

#8
Your idea for another type of menu (or another variation on the screenshots above).

To just name a few questions we have:
  • Should we change something in the menu? If so, what should it be changed into?
  • Do you find the hints at the top of each screen useful and would you prefer to keep these hints as-is? Or would a tooltip be enough to describe the feature (with or without the large question button on top of the window)?
  • Is the separation of the screens (maintenance, computer, management) useful to you?
  • Another idea we've had was that the question icon on top of the window had two options, one would be to go to the manual (as described above) and the other one would be to show the tooltips in a dialog. Is this something you see as an improvement?

You can leave your feedback on this announcement, in the discussion forums or contact us through email. Please tell us about your opinion as your feedback is very important for us and the future of Driver Fusion.
